Fibro & vulvodynia
2 Replies
Lisa - February 14

First, I have not been formally diagnosed with either. I have been to "several" different physicians over the last several years for different things, most of which I recently found out are symptoms of fibro.

For the past year, I have had bouts of severe pain in the vulva area. Been to 2 doctors, 1 nurse practitioner for treatment. First doctor was totally unresponsive; second treated it as a bacterial infection; nurse practitioner tested and found no bacterial infection. After researching, I finally told the nurse practitioner that I thought it may be vulvodynia. Her response was that she did not feel comfortable with diagnosing it since there are few ladies that she has seen with this condition...so I am headed to see doctor number three. My question....Is vulvodynia a symptom of fibro too? (From what I found, I think it is, but want other opinions.) My upcoming appt. is w/a gyn. and I am wondering if I should mention my concerns with the possibility of fibro? I have had a nurse and my p.t. tell me I may have fibro.

Never heard of that being a symptom of fibro more like a STD.

No, LAPTOP, it is not a STD.
